In Instant Attraction, Jill Shalvis introduced Cameron, Stone, and T.J.—the sexy, daredevil brothers who run Wilder Adventures. And for Stone Wilder, the thrill of a lifetime is about to arrive in a surprising package. . .

The Doctor Is In Deep

Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair’s last job in a New York City ER. It may as well be another galaxy. Here, running her father’s clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Plus, she has to contend with patients like Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. A lot. And Emma loathes him. All except that tiny part of her that wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book. . .

When Stone tries to help Emma learn to loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. Not a mind-blowing affair that shakes them both to the core. Emma’s sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here—in this town, in his life. And convincing this strong-minded, stubborn, sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resist. . .


After laughing out loud plenty of times in the first book, Instant Attraction, I knew Stone’s book was going to be a fun and sexy read.  Stone Wilder is the middle brother and I found that he had similar qualities from his two other brothers. 

Stone has been secretly attracted to the new Doctor in town for a bit now.  He has watched her from afar and is ready to start with the flirting.  Emma on the other hand, would rather ignore Stone.  She knows he is attractive and can’t stop thinking about him, but she is only here for a short time.  Her father had a stroke and she took over his office while he recovers.  She still plans on going back to her busy city life once her Father is well enough to return to work.  When Stone just happens to keep getting hurt and needing the assistance of her Doctor expertise, things start to heat up between the two. 

I just loved Stone.  He kept me laughing through out the entire story and his efforts to break down Emma’s wall were great.  Emma on the other hand is the complete opposite of Stone.  Where Stone is laid back and easy going, Emma is uptight and orderly.  How these two are attracted to one another is a miracle in itself.  Yet as you read the story, you can’t help but notice they are perfect for each other.  I loved how they supported each other on certain things and they both wanted something more in life. 

While I am not a big fan of the cover, as many others have agreed to, the story within is well worth the read.  Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.  But if you want the full swoon worthy effect of the Wilder brothers, I recommend starting with the first one and reading them in order.


Very Good! I would recommend this book!
